11:15 AM Saturday Room: 4302One of the most important tools you need is a Version Control System (VCS). But while it can be very useful, it can also be very frustrating. It's common to branch your code, but when it comes time to merge, it can be a big problem. In this session, you will learn concepts to avoid branching in the first place, when branching makes sense, and how to branch effectively. Whether you use a centralized or distributed VCS, you'll see how to apply practices that can make a big impact in managing your VCS.
1:45 PM Saturday Room: Hearthside LoungeMVC applications are designed for testability, but out of the box ASP.Net MVC applications still have issues that prevent you from having good unit tests. Rather than taking the typical TDD approach, this session we will take an existing MVC application and modify the code to make it unit-testable. This method of learning reinforces unit test concepts which must be learned before tackling TDD. You will also learn about repositories, mocks, and dependency injection.
